You don't have the correct switch. Should have two terminals, one of which is grounded. The "S" would be to the starter and you have a push button for that.

Get this one, it will do the trick for you.

So does the grounded one go to the rectifier to kill the engine

No not the rectifier.

It goes to the ignition wire which may be on the same panel as the rectifier diodes.
